“There is no reference to the past,” said Carolina Herrera during a preview. “I’m trying to go to the future.” Forecasting fall 2014, the future is subdued by day and bold by night.


Herrera’s bid for a new daywear proportion — volume with rounded shoulders on top, over slim skirts and pants — yielded strong returns. A gray mélange cashmere turtleneck, cut with extra breathing room and shown with a flannel skirt, felt new and youthful. The rich but relatively quiet palette of brown, navy and royal blue gave a moneyed timelessness to the swing jackets and straight skirts with luxe accents, like the silver fox collar on a navy coat.  


More niche were Herrera’s beloved prints, here in geometric patterns and rusty shades of blue, bronze and orange — colors experiencing an uptick in popularity this season. Timeliness aside, those earthy-toned graphics made for a jarring choice for some of her eveningwear. The glamorous gowns offered in solids, such as a the navy-and-brass silk charmeuse halter had classic, if not futuristic, appeal.
